Last weekend, on my radio show "Catch of the Day," we visited with Mahani Teave, a concert pianist whose musical odyssey began on her ancestral Rapa Nui (Easter Island), where she now leads a school. The program also featured tracks from her debut recital album Rapa Nui Odyssey. As I mentioned at the time, I had a more formal portrait of Mahani in the works for Air Mail (airmail.news), and as of today it's online. By all means, check it out. As usual, the art department has done me proud. See the screenshot below.
